Announced as explosive, when Gianluigi Donnarumma (23) joined Paris Saint-Germain last summer, the relationship between the ex-Rossonero and Keylor Navas (35) logically became more complicated as the season. Competing for the number one spot in the Parisian cages, the two Parisian doormen, annoyed by the situation, did not hesitate to put pressure on the capital club regarding its subject. And it seems that the messages have passed since the PSG has finally decided.
“I know I can do more, I haven’t played so many matches, only half, it hasn’t been easy. In the conditions that I experienced, I could not give the maximum, but I am convinced that I can give much more to this team and to this club.. Here is what Gianluigi Donnarumma recently said to the“AFP”. A pressure shot from the Italian goalkeeper echoing that of Keylor Navas, just as annoyed by this situation of permanent competition in the Parisian cages. To you, to me, no hierarchy was finally established between the two men, despite a preference given to the Italian on the European scene, like the knockout stages of the Champions League where the former -Rossonero played both matches against Real Madrid (1-0, 1-3). But what about next season?
Asked about Gianluigi Donnarumma’s latest outings, Mauricio Pochettino, present at a press conference before the trip to Montpellier, preferred to kick in touch: “I don’t know what Gigio said. I prefer to hear the players first. The club will make the decision as they always have. Then everyone will have their own opinion. Maybe there will be change, maybe not.. A speech much more tempered than that of the former Milanese, convinced of an evolution in the weeks to come: I think that it will surely not happen like that, because I think that the club will make choices. A message that seems to have borne fruit.
PSG is preparing a major cleaning for its goalkeepers!
According to the latest daily news The Team, the club of the capital has, in fact, decided between the two men. Author of 23 matches in all competitions since the start of the season, Gianluigi Donnarumma, with 8 clean sheets, will thus be promoted to real number one for the 2022-2023 season, to the chagrin of former Merengues goalkeeper Keylor Navas (25 games, 9 clean sheets). With this in mind, the daily also specifies that the Parisian management is preparing to carry out a major cleaning within its guards.
From the next summer transfer window, the upper echelons of Paris wish, in fact, to part with Keylor Navas, estimated at 10 M€ and who still has two years of contract, Sergio Rico, on loan since January in Mallorca where he has not convinced, Marcin Bulka, loaned to OGC Nice, or Alphonse Areola, loaned this season to West Ham with a purchase option slightly over €10 million. So many changes which will however depend on the new (or not) sports management of PSG, also promised, to great upheavals whether in the position of coach or that of sports director. One thing is certain, from next season, it is Gianluigi Donnarumma who will put on the boss’s costume in the Parisian cages.
